Artwork: "Subway Chicks" (Tanen/Hagen)

Location: Subway Car Interior Art
Installation Year: 2004
Notes:

A new Centennial Art Card created by artist Sloane Tanen and photographer Stefan Hagen is also on display inside subway cars. It portrays tiny yellow chicks celebrating the opening day of the subway. Tanen and Hagen based their creation on the historic day in October 1904 when Mayor McClellan drove the first subway car from the City Hall Station. Their artwork is populated with musicians, reporters, spectators, vendors, and politicians, all of whom participated in the celebration of this momentous occasion. Tanen and Hagen said, "Every attempt was made to replicate, in 3/4 scale, the spectacular space, complete with parquet floors, chandeliers and marble benches. Great care was also taken to capture the mood and excitement of that long-forgotten day." Source: MTA Press Release, mta.info
